Like a large amount of people, when Normal People got adapted for TV I made it my life. I watched it over and over and read the book multiple times too. So, when I found out that Conversations with Friends was also getting a TV adaptation I was incredibly excited. I made sure I had read the book before watching the TV show so that I could compare them both. It is safe to say, I loved them both. Each for slightly different reasons but I loved it.
I recently finished reading Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney and the watching the TV adaption and I loved it. There are so many quotes from this book that I have been thinking about ever since. Sally Rooney's writing is beautiful and I feel like it resonates with so many people. So, I wanted to do what I normally do with a book that I enjoy, which is pick a quote from it and get designing.

Today is officially the day that I go on my summer holiday! It may not technically be the 'Summer' just yet but I am going to class it as summer. I thought what better way to celebrate by posting the Summer book tag. I saw this over on Steph's blog, so be sure to check out her post. I am so excited to be on holiday and share the holiday cheer. So, here is The Summer Book Tag!
Happy June everyone! It is time for another monthly book haul! This haul consists 18 books which is a whole lot more than I planned on getting this month but we move on (June's haul should be shorter). It has books gifted from publishers, pre-orders and a couple of presents for myself. Here is my May book haul!
May is almost over and this month has both dragged and flown by. I've been on a few days out, went to a Literary Festival and a whole lot more. Here is what happened in May!
Throughout May I have read 12 books! I have been listening to quite a few audiobooks this month which seems to have bumped up the number of books I've read. So, I am back with another what I’ve read this month post. Here is a bunch of mini reviews for the books I read in May!
